Headlines Monday 29th December 2008

PEOPLE WHO CARE
Tim Blair
Dismayed by Kevin Rudd’s decision not to destroy Australia’s economy, Sunday Age state political reporter Melissa Fyfe considers how her tribe might respond:
In the past fortnight, something has dawned on people who care about climate change: perhaps it is time to acknowledge that too much faith has been put in the political process.
Not enough people vote Green and Rudd isn’t closing power stations. The political process is therefore broken.

SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH AL GORE’S HEAD
Tim Blair
The once-regal geological formation known as Al Gore’s Head is in danger of collapse:
Beautiful Sunset
Hell of a tilt Gore’s got going there.

2008 was the year man-made global warming was disproved

HOLD THE COURSE
Tim Blair
Barack Obama during the election campaign: “We can’t just keep driving our SUVs, eating whatever we want, keeping our homes at 72 degrees at all times regardless of whether we live in the tundra or the desert and keep consuming 25 percent of the world’s resources with just 4 percent of the world’s population, and expect the rest of the world to say, ‘You just go ahead, we’ll be fine.’” Subsequently dragged from their SUVs by agents representing the feared Office of the President Elect, Americans probably expected by now to be scuttling around their nation in Pelosi GTxi SS/RTs or tiny Obamacars:
Beautiful Sunset
But Obama is apparently averse to change, as Mark Steyn writes:
If I understand then Sen. Obama’s logic, in a just world Americans would be 4 percent of the population and consume 4 percent of the world’s resources. And in these past few months we’ve made an excellent start toward that blessed utopia: Americans are driving smaller cars, buying smaller homes, giving smaller Christmas presents.

And yet, strangely, President-elect Barack Obama doesn’t seem terribly happy about the Obamafication of the U.S. economy. He’s proposing some 5.7 bazillion dollar “stimulus” package or whatever it is now to “stimulate” it back into its bad old ways.
Certain people will do anything to keep their SUVs.

PEACE STUDIED
Tim Blair
Piers Akerman notes a happy development for Dave the Jew-hater:
Not only has David Hicks, a self-confessed supporter of terrorism with an expressed lust for the murder of non-Muslims, been lionised by organisations such as the Left-leaning advocacy group Get Up! (the body which boasted of its representation at Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s farcical 2020 retrovision conference), he has now found a girlfriend from within Sydney University’s Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies.
Just one? You’d have thought he’d have a whole harem by now. Further on Aloysia Brooks, the future Mrs Dave:
Ms Brooks writes poetry on human rights issues and was this year enrolled at the University of Sydney’s Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies. A Sydney woman with her distinctive first name leapt to Mr Hicks’s defence on a newspaper website in 2006.

“David Hicks is someone’s brother, son and father,” Aloysia wrote. “He gets scared, bleeds and feels pain just like you or I ... He is someone who deserves to be treated with dignity, respect and compassion no matter what he has done.”
